Wildlife is a hot button issue. There are always arguments about what should be done with wildlife that has entered our living space, either through natural desires or by human intervention. Arguments over how to deal with these creatures can often become heated and polarized as people take up sides on the matter of whether they have any say in where wild animals live or if it’s simply something we must accept no matter how much work goes into preventing them from coming home again. It’s an important discussion, but one which I’m not here to argue today; rather, this post will discuss some things you may want to know before deciding whether a wildlife removal specialist might be right for your needs and those of your property.
The first thing you’ll want to do is decide what type of animal you are dealing with. The Wildlife Removal Experts have a checklist for this, but there are some common types that show up around the country and often require different treatment methods from one another:
My second point would be to know your own skillset. If you’re not confident in handling animals yourself or if you just don’t want to deal with it at all, then an expert will likely provide the best solution for your needs. They may also find more serious issues than someone who only knows how to spot a raccoon living under their porch; these things can lead into other problems and the experts are trained to find and fix them.
Finally, you’ll want to know what type of service they offer. There will be different animals that require different approaches, so it’s important for you as a homeowner or business owner to know if your needs can be addressed by one company or not:
-Exclusion (working around the wildlife onsite) -Elimination (removing the wildlife from site completely)
It is often best when homeowners use a variety of these techniques in order to prevent more problems in future; however, each situation should always have an individual assessment done before determining which course would work best. Exterminators tend towards exclusion because it gets rid of any sort of threat to you or your property, but it’s only good if the animal can’t find another way in. The live trapping option is often better because they give opportunities for education and rehabilitation while providing a safer environment for everyone involved; however, each situation should be examined before deciding which one would work best with every type of animal.
The important thing to remember about wildlife removal is that not all companies will offer what you need them too. It’s always best when homeowners contact more than one company so as to get an idea of their approach and see who might have the skillset necessary to successfully complete whatever project you may want done on your residential or commercial space.
